About Stuart Akerman, M.D.

Dr. Akerman is fellowship-trained in many advanced endoscopic procedures including ERCP, endoscopic ultrasound, fine needle aspiration, and cholangioscopy. He practiced in Bayshore, NY for several years before relocating to the North Texas area. It is very important to him to be able to work with other physicians in the practice that are also advanced endoscopists.

I was referred to Dr. Akerman for a procedure by my treating gastroenterologist. I have to admit that after being with my usual doctor for many years, I was very nervous about seeing someone new even if just for a consult and a procedure. After my doctor spoke to Dr. Akerman, I was immediately contacted by his assistant and offered an appointment right away to meet with him. At my appointment, Dr. Akerman listened to my history, reviewed my medical records, and agreed the procedure was needed. He explained everything he would do and answered all my questions. His assistant took care of scheduling and in fact he was available to do the procedure sooner than my schedule allowed but I appreciate knowing that there would not have been any wait at all if needed. At the hospital, everyone was exceptionally kind and took very good care of me. The staff also commented that both my treating doctor and Dr. Akerman were the best around and I was in good hands. My procedure went fine and Dr. Akerman came to speak to my husband right afterwards and again to speak with me after I woke up. I received my test results just a couple of days later through the portal and Dr. Akerman also replied the same day with a follow up question I asked. Overall, I am extremely satisfied and would feel more than comfortable if I needed Dr. Akerman's services again in the future. Because of his compassion and kindness, he made an otherwise stressful situation as easy as possible. Thank you, Dr. Akerman.

Dr. Akerman and his staff are fantastic! My daughter had an endoscopy and was super nervous because I couldn't go in with her due to COVID restrictions. He was so sweet and comforting. That goes a long way with a concerned Mom. :-) I also recently had a colonoscopy and he and everyone at the facility were awesome. Highly recommend!

I was taken care of with great professionalism, courtesy and respect. All the staff went above and beyond to make me comfortable and attended to at all times. I asked a lot of questions and got straight forward and clear answers to all of them. I never felt rushed, and the doctor Stuart Akerman was very knowledgeable and instilled a lot of trust. I have high confidence in his treatment and skills, my experience couldn’t be better. He tells you exactly how things are and his recommendations. Very pleased.
